After a period our database was in production it slowed down , We make a lot of tunning. Now we have a testing server we put a copy of the production database (full one) , the perfomance is better , BUT when we use a new empty database on the same server the performance slower than the huge one!!!![:^)] we have made some reaserch and experiments like the follwoing: 1- delete all indexes from the empty database. 2- make the two databases on the same physical disk but nothing we have. plz any ideas?
